Dr Steve Davies speaks to ABC Australia
Steve’s book examines the reasons behind the situation – present for most of history – where people lived their lives in poverty, as their ancestors did, to the present day where we live in undeniable, comparative luxury.
Steve argues periods of development, progress on innovation, have existed but always been curtailed by regulation or actively smoothed by elites. In the 1900s however, something changed.
